Thrash metal masters SYLOSIS have returned with their first new music of 2022. The band, who are set to headline the inaugural Knotfest Presents Pulse Of The Maggots festival and play the mainstage at Bloodstock this week, have released a new single titled ‘Heavy Is The Crown’. The track ebbs and flows as the band’s signature, thunderous grooves give way to a masterfully crafted chorus.
Maestro Josh Middleton comments “Heavy Is The Crown is the first of a trilogy of singles we’re releasing this year – these songs were developed during the writing of the next Sylosis record and although weren’t right for the album, are perfect for some standalone bangers. Heavy Is The Crown is a song that all our fans can get into and also highlights some of the progression in the band’s sound.”

The band’s latest record, Cycle Of Suffering, was released back in February 2020 via Nuclear Blast Records, following a three year hiatus, and showcased the band at their most versatile and compelling. The album was heralded by fans and critics alike, and saw the band headline a sold out show at London’s Islington Assembly Hall prior to the ceasing of live events.
